Cubs, Todd Wellemeyer Agree Upon 1-Year Minor League Deal — Wrigley Field 1/26/11

Posted on 26 January 2011 by Lou

The Cubs and Todd Wellemeyer have agreed upon a 1-year minor league deal that will bring the big righty back to the North Side.  The deal is for $800,000 while Wellemeyer has the ability to earn an additional $400,000 in incentives.

Wellemeyer was part of the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants in 2010.  He made 13 appearances (11 starts) and went 3-5 with a 5.68 ERA.

Wellemeyer made 57 appearances for the Cubs from 2003-2005.  His best season came in 2008 when he went 13-9 with a 3.71 ERA as a starter for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Not really sure where he fits into the mix for the Cubs, especially at almost a million for the season, but we’ll see what if he has what it takes to be a veteran presence in the Cubs bullpen during the 2011 MLB schedule…
